Foreign Language Security Analytics

Your information systems are under attack. Many of your cyber attackers hail from China, Russia, and Iran. We prepare you to address their next moves. Our team consists of experts with native or near-native language ability, deep cultural knowledge of China, Russia, and Iran, in conjunction with computer security experts. Our team has worked together for more than 6 years.

 

We have developed foreign-language-based research and analysis of cyber actors – businesses, bureaucrats, and people. We also understand how the information technology and information security sectors in these countries work, and how the associated government structures function. We provide research products customized to our clients’ needs. We conduct, document, and preserve our foreign- and English-language research by using a highly collaborative process employing internal Wikis and social bookmarking tools.

Advanced Analytics

Technology has provided organizations with access to huge volumes of information, such as documents, databases, email repositories, images, multimedia files, and geospatial data. It would be impossible for a human to sift through this information for important and relevant facts without being overwhelmed. As the volume and variety of information has grown through the years, various technologies have developed to help with managing information overload. From our inception, MSI has worked with tools and technologies that address many different aspects of the information overload problem.

 

Advanced Analytics encompasses the architecture and implementation of solutions that aid in the discovery, organization, and analysis of complex volumes of data. Discovery consists of using search engines, categorization tools, and information extraction to sort through raw data. Organization provides users a way to access and track information and to control access and sharing. Finally, analysis and visualization provides users with ways of organizing data that reveals relationships and patterns that might otherwise go undetected.
